Why tiney?

Earn £40,000 - and beyond

1:1 support

You'll receive personalised support to launch a successful business with our in-house coach and childminding experts, taking the risk out starting up.

Flexibility and freedom

It's an early years career where you're in control of your time and your curriculum. No bosses, no bureaucracy and no paperwork.

“[tiney] aims to revolutionise childminding by giving candidates intensive training, linking them to a support-network of other childminders and helping them to run their businesses.”

“[tiney] supports them with regulations, gives training, handles the business-admin, deals with the parents and runs the Ofsted inspections.”

“Music to the ears of any parent, desperate to find an appealing, affordable solution to their childcare woes.”

How tiney works...

What Early Years professionals are saying

See why tiney's the perfect fit

"I didn’t start this with a business mindset. They take care of the hard stuff, which is great for someone who's never been self-employed before."

Former primary school teacher

“In my previous childcare roles, I didn’t enjoy not being able to give children 1-on-1 attention. Working in a childminding setting means I can give them all the attention they need.”

Former Nursery Key Worker

"The tiney team is amazing and supported me with everything. My business is more successful than I could have imagined.”

"My favourite thing about joining tiney is being able to be with my daughter every day. Doing it on your own is much more complicated, as I’ve never set up my own business before. They showed me step-by-step what I needed to do."
